Fartei-me de pensar em adjectivos que melhor descrevessem a Biblioteca de Amesterdão e a palavra que mais vezes me veio à cabeça foi a palavra cool. Sim, é uma palavra usada em exagero, como referência a tudo e mais alguma coisa, mas, neste caso, faz todo o sentido. A Biblioteca é a epítome do cool, precisamente porque é o perfeito espelho da sua cidade: relaxada e confiante, tradicional e moderna.

E foi assim que me despedi de Amesterdão, mas... ainda havia mais um dia para gastar e outra cidade para visitar: Utrecht!

I thought and thought about adjectives that better described the Central Library of Amsterdam and the word that keept coming to my head was the word cool. Yes, it's very used word as a reference to everything and anything but, in this case, it makes perfect sense. The library is the epitome of cool, precisely because it is the perfect mirror of its city: relaxed and confident, traditional and modern.

And that's how I said goodbye to Amsterdam, but... there was still one more day to spend and one more city to visit: Utrecht!
